Pine City Junior Killed In Car Crash
A one car accident over the weekend killed a Pine City girl on Highway 61 in Hinckley.
On Friday night, a car being driven by Pine City junior Haylie Samuelson failed to navigate a sharp turn and flipped over killing Samuelson and sending a female passenger in that same vehicle to the hospital. KARE 11 reports that friends told authorities Samuelson may have been texting while driving before the accident, but that hasn’t been confirmed by authorities yet.
The passenger of the vehicle was released from North Memorial on Sunday.
The exact cause of the accident that took the life of Haylie Samuelson still remains unclear. The Sheriff’s office is investigating.
